Worst Things to do Before a Run | 4 Common Mistakes
10 Things Runners Should Stop Doing
While some runners can get away with not eating at all before a run of any distance, you'll run stronger if you eat something before. Ideally, you want to try to eat something at least 90 minutes before running, so you have time to digest your food, you're fueled for your run, and you're not starving during your run. But that obviously doesn't work for everyone, especially morning runners. If you run in the morning and your run is for under an hour, you can get away with not eating before. But you still need to make sure you're hydrated before you start running. Drink at least 6-8 ounces of water when you first wake up. You could drink a sports drink before your run so you know you're at least getting some calories.
If you're running longer than an hour or doing an intense speed workout, and you're running in the morning, it's best to force yourself to wake an hour and a half early or more for a small meal. Eating a 300-500 calorie breakfast of mostly carbs will ensure you're not running on fumes. Some examples of good pre-workout fuel include a banana and an energy bar; a bagel with peanut butter; or a bowl of cold cereal with a cup of milk. If you're eating less than an hour before your run, aim for a light, 200-300 calorie snack such as toast with peanut butter or a cup of yogurt.
